Furnaces

Most of the households in North America use central furnaces as the primary heat source in their homes. A furnace works by blowing heated air through ducts that deliver the air throughout the home via registers or grills. Electricity, natural gas or oil can power a furnace. Weather Master is proud to offer top-of-the-line Lennox gas furnaces for exceptional heating efficiency.

With gas-powered furnaces, the fuel is mixed with air and burned. The air from this is pushed through the heat exchanger by the air handler’s furnace fan and then forced through the ductwork.

Heat Pumps

Heat pumps are basically heat magicians. They perform double duty—searching for heat that’s present in the air, no matter if it’s winter or summer. During the winter, heat pumps look for heat in the ground and outside with the assistance of an electrical system, and then distribute that warm air throughout the house.

Because heat pumps don’t generate heat like furnaces, they are more energy-efficient than most heating systems.

Ductless Split Systems

Did you know that using air ducts to distribute air throughout your house is generally something only seen in North America? That’s because, around the world it’s been discovered that a ductless split system is more cost-effective when it comes to replacing electric resistance heating.

Right now, you’ll find most ductless systems in new residential additions, workshops, converted attics, etc. If you have rooms that you don’t use often, such as guest bedrooms, you could save energy by being able to choose what room you should heat or cool.
